Apple adds a camera to its entry level iPod Touch

We’re not sure how popular the iPod Touch is any more, but if you didn’t want to spend much on a media player and wanted a camera included as well, well, that’s now a thing, as far as Apple’s concerned.

A random update as far as we can tell, Apple is giving its low-end iPod Touch a boost of light, or rather, the ability to capture light and make digital images out of them.

Just like the 32GB and 64GB iPod Touch available for the past year or so, the 16GB will now come with a 5 megapixel rear iSight camera, capable of capturing up to 1080p Full HD video.

Everything else is still the same, with the 4 inch Retina grade screen still employed, the same one on the iPhone 5S and 5C, as well as a selection of colours, aluminium casing, and Apple’s A5 processor from before.

We’re not sure why Apple has taken this moment to update its iPod Touch product line-up, mind you.

There’s certainly no reason for the 16GB iPod Touch to get the same camera as its 32 and 64GB brothers, especially all of a sudden, so we could be looking at Apple recycling the hardware and getting ready for a shift in design or the inclusion of a better camera in other products.

Either way, if you were looking for a media player with a camera and didn’t want a phone as part of the package — because seriously, every smartphone out there also has these features, though not the Apple iOS operating system — you can now find the 16GB iPod Touch with camera in Apple stores and online for $249, with the 32GB and 64GB for $299 and $349 respectively.
